I picked up this really sweet book called “Lest We Forget” by Kerry Brown.

It’s about a little boy talking to his Grandpa about important days in his life, playing soccer with his team, new uniform on the first day at school…… and through the beautiful illustrations you see the parallel story of his Grandpas time at war, with his “team” in the trenches, wearing his soldiers uniform.

We’ve had 7 billion questions this morning about the story, and how it makes her feel, and what she thinks it means which is EXACTLY what we read books for right?

It’s available online here or you can grab a copy from Kmart or Target (online or instore)

  • On Tuesday 25 April 2023 communities all over Adelaide will remember and honour the brave soldiers who fought (and still fight to this day) for our country. The RSL South Australia Dawn Services, ANZAC march & Cross of Sacrifice services will be happening. Keep an eye on the RSLSA page for more info as it becomes available. Make 2023 the year we get to take our kids to a Dawn Service and further teach them the importance of this day. A particular favourite for the Kids in Adelaide team is the ANZAC Day service at the Light Horse Memorial in the CBD East parklands. Starting at a family friendly time of 8am, easy nearby parking, a short and sharp service, and with a team of horses on site (that the kids can feed/pat after the service!) this one can't be beaten - more details on this service here If you are stuck in isolation or can't get to a Dawn Service, you are encouraged to stand at the end of your driveway (or on a balcony on in the living room) at 6am with a candle to honour all who have served us.

  • I. LOVE. MARKETS! I've been on both sides of the market stall, and I am a big fan. Give me a fresh juice, some live music, and some cheese samples and I will come a running. Here in Adelaide we are so lucky to have so many fantastic markets to choose from so we've gathered up the ones we know about and added them all to this page. It's updated constantly with new markets added all the time so make sure you check back each weekend to find out where your local market is, or discover a new Adelaide market to check out this weekend!

  • One of our favourite options on ANZAC day for Adelaide families is the service at the Light Horse Memorial in the east parklands. This one is particularly great for families with young kids, those who just cannot make the 6am dawn service time or anyone else keen to get the family to a service with a little less stress and a little more of interest for the kids. Reasons we love the ANZAC Day Light Horse Memorial service in Adelaide: They have horses!! The kids love this aspect! The service is usually way less crowded than the other big ones, and is generally shorter too The service generally starts a little later than others - usually at 8am Attendees can pat and feed the horses after the service, or leave carrots and apples for the service animals morning tea later There is nearby on street parking on Rundle St You'll find the Adelaide ANZAC Day Light Horse Memorial service on the corner of East Terrace and North Terrace / Botanic Road - across from the Botanic Hotel and the Botanic Gardens entrance gates. The service usually starts at 8am - but always best to check the details on the RSL…
